Dr. DelaTorre has been practicing medicine for the past 15 years with a simple yet powerful philosophy. “Do no harm and be honest and compassionate to patients.”

During his freshman year of medical school, Dr. DelaTorre’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was seeing her medical oncologist save her life that prompted Dr. DelaTorre to pursue a specialty in oncology.

Dr. DelaTorre was drawn to the care model at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA).  “I like that patients are equal partners with their physicians in making decisions regarding their health care. At CTCA, we treat each individual patient with dignity and respect, encompassing spiritual, emotional, allopathic medicine combined with evidence-based integrative nutritional and naturopathic remedies.”

Dr. DelaTorre is a member of American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Medical Association, as well as Illinois State Medical Society.  He also teaches at the College of Medicine and the Longitudinal Primary Care Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

He has participated in many clinical research experiences that have been published in Integrative Cancer Therapies, a scientific Peer-reviewed journal published quarterly by Sage Science Publications.

In his spare time, Dr. DelaTorre enjoys staying active. “I believe that a healthy mind, body and spirit form the foundation of a happy person. I swim, run and do yoga and meditation.”
